Burgin, a consultant to libraries and former professor of library and information sciences at North Carolina Central U., offers public, academic, and school librarians a guide to helping patrons find nonfiction travel narratives. He lists about 600 titles according to genres and reading interests--narratives where the destination is key, quests, the process of traveling, the means of travel, the expatriate life, travel humor, and travel adventure--in addition to fiction readalikes and related reads. Each chapter includes a definition of the subgenre, explanation of its appeal, and recommended titles in specific categories, with publication information, lists of awards, a synopsis, subjects, places, and suggestions for what to read next. He does not include travel guides, books of mostly photos, or travel that is not voluntary. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
